I am new too. I ran across this from Amazon. Your Kindle is evermore being made easier to use...even for free content.


Internet Archive is a non-profit dedicated to offering permanent access to historical collections that exist in digital format. Provides over 2.5 million free ebooks to read, download, and enjoy.

1. Visit archive.org.

2. Search for a title or browse one of the sub-collections like American Libraries.

3. When viewing a title, click the link on the left labeled "Kindle" to download the file to your computer.

4. Attach your Kindle to your computer using your USB cable and drag the file to the "Documents" folder on your Kindle. You can also e-mail the file to your Kindle using Whispernet for wireless delivery (charges may apply).

5. Open the ebook from your Kindle's home screen and enjoy.

I would, however, like to add some info that may make your first download easier than mine.

Connect your kindle to your computer.

Download the book you would like.

When it is downloaded i had the choice of opening it in it's file. Do this. The item highlighted will be your book (if you have an operating system similar to mine.

Then just simply drag that item over to the Kindle folder on the left and hover over "Internal Storage". You will have a menu of places to "put" your item. Amazon suggests the Docs folder. I did this with a few books now and am happy with the result. of course I cannot tell you how to put these in the cloud. The clouds are a bit over my head. lol. Happy reading. And, I have to add, Yay Kindle.

Thanks for your further reply. Did not see until just now.
I discovered your solution by accident so managed to get it onto my kindle. Best wishes, John
